    I did a thing...

    I sprayed my car in Autoflex removable coatings and ZTS Hypershift. Looks and feels like paint. There were 4 other TMC members that had the chance to see and feel the car this evening. It is a very hard shift. 9 different colors. Green, teal, blue, purple, pink, orange, yellow, blurple and aqua. This is NOT plasti dip. It is completely removable with no ill effect to the clear coat or paint underneath. It can be sanded, buffed, polished and waxed just like real paint. I had a tough time at the car show tonight trying to convince people this is not paint. Enjoy...

    That is freaky. Wild. How long will it last?

    unlike plastidip, autoflex won't get brittle over time, and it's sandable, waxable, and buffable...so I would think it could last several years. I know Darren plans to leave this one on for 2 years, but...we'll see if he makes it that long before he is itching to do another color!

    The company that sells it sprayed multiple panels in Autoflex and left them in full sunlight. Every few months they peel a panel. They just peeled the "one year" panel last week. Perfectly clean peel.

    Looks nice! That said, it's weird that the passenger side has a full chrome delete around the windows, but the driver's side only has it done on the driver's door panel. Intentional?

    The chrome trim around the windows will all be peeled once it cures. He started peeling but the clear coat was stretching, so stopped part way on that driver's side. Good catch!

    Very cool! How does installation work? Professional painter? Do it yourself? I'm also curious about the cost.
